“To help those who teach bridge to do it better, more effectively, more knowledgeably, more professionally.”

Inspired by the familiar holiday song, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," we give you a more bridge-centric version just in time for the Holidays.

Rudolph the Bridge-Playing Reindeer

Rudolph, the reindeer partner,
Had a very bad hand,
And if you ever saw it,
You would even say it’s banned.

All of the other players
Used to laugh and make him fret.
They never let poor Rudolph
Into the auction to bet.

Then one foggy tournament,
Santa came to say:
“Rudolph with your hand so right,
Won’t you play bridge with me tonight?”

Then all the players loved him
As they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the reindeer partner,
You’ll make Master Points history!
